Speech Language Services

Speech/Language services are more commonly known as Speech Therapy.  Children who receive speech/language services in the public school must qualify for these services under the guidelines set forth by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and federal regulations as well as the Wyoming Department of Education Chapter 7 Rules and Regulations.

 

Speech/Language Pathologists deliver services in four areas of need.  These include:

 

Articulation - speech sound production or phonological errors atypical of a child of comparable age and development.

 

Language -a deficiency in language comprehension or production evident in the content, form or use of oral communication or its equivalent.

 

Stuttering - an abnormal flow of speech evident in interruptions by hesitations, repetitious or prolongations of sounds, syllables, words or phrases or articulary position or by avoidance and struggle behaviors.

 

Voice - a significant deviation in pitch, intensity or quality, which significantly interferes with communication for an extended period of time and is atypical for a child of comparable age and development.  Voice referrals are accompanied by a physicians statement.
